Disney apologizes to couple whose marriage proposal was thwarted by employee

Disney said it has apologized to a couple whose now-viral marriage proposal was interrupted by an overzealous employee.

The viral video first posted on Reddit last week showed a man getting on one knee to propose

to his girlfriend on a platform in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, Paris.

Mid-proposal, an employee rushes up and snatches the ring box out of the man’s hands and ushers the couple off the platform, the video shows.

Onlookers immediately began to boo the employee.

The Redditor who posted the video said his friend had previously asked

another employee if proposing on the platform was OK, and that she said yes.

We regret how this was handled," a Disney spokesperson told Newsweek. "We have apologized to the couple involved and offered to make it right."

Disney did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment on Sunday.
